Throw back thursday: Edgar Allan Poe- Alone

Yaaaassss! yaaaasss! So… I have been gone for a while. I could only hope that you missed me, 😁. Anyway life gets busy and i never wanted to be away from WordPress, but i simply had no time. Anyway today’s throwback is very personal to me, because this poem just explains how i was and how i am. I was a peculiar child..and i guess all round human as well 🙂. Growing up wasn’t easy for me, no one understood me and everything around me was so silly and dumbed down, as a child with such an ld soul, i could not understand many things, especially how grown ups acted, i mean, i was more mature than they were, But i suppose that was the 90’s! god times though.  Without further moaning frm my side, This week’s poem is by Edgar Allan Poe titled Alone. It’s a very short but great and heart felt honest wrk and i love it! Hope u guys enjoy it too!🙂

EDGAR ALLAN POE – ALONE

From childhood’s hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.

Happy women’s day!

The day commemorates the 1956 march of approximately 20 000 women to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to petition against the country’s pass laws that required South Africans defined as “black” under The Population Registration Act to carry an internal passport, known as a pass, that served to maintain population segregation, control urbanisation, and manage migrant labour during the apartheid erato protest against the carrying of pass books.
